I changed over from Marathi to English for my comments on Shri. Oak's book recently. I continue to get readers but there are no comments! Wonder whether I am boring!

Likely year of war.
I consider Epoch of Arundhati as an acceptable proposition. Also Vyasa has positively stated that Arundhati was being seen as walking ahead of Vasishtha. Why he has included the observation among many other bad omens, many of them quite fanciful, is a moot point. In my view it would be quite appropriate to look for a war year within the Epoch.
Taking a close look at the chart furnished by Shri. Oak, it is seen that the RA difference was maximum at about 8000 years back from now, or, say 6000 BCE. The maximum difference is approx. 500 + arc seconds at that time. The difference became just positive at about 11000 BCE and slowly crept up. From 6000 BCE it started declining. My contention is that it must have become noticeable during the ‘rising’ phase. If it did not do so, the chance of becoming noticeable would obviously be less and less after 6000 BCE. So 6000 BCE or some year a little before that, would be the best ‘Candidate’ year for being the war year on the test of ‘epoch’. What other tests it should withstand is another matter, e. g. Position of Saturn!
